I arrived at the huge suburban shopping mall about ten minutes before opening, but still had to park at the very back of the top level parking garage. The stores were completely full. The lines at the registers were long. The shoes I had my eye on were already gone (the pair in my size, anyway). I’ll admit it; I’m not a power shopper. I gave up and went home.
